to satisfy anyone, even if it means telling our allies or to the american president or the e.u. or to the u.n., we do not agree with you. and i will give you two examples. we are all, and i'm going to build on issue of -- [inaudible] the for iran let's think about iraq. in the early '80s prime minister menachem begin decided to attack the nuclear reactor in iraq. it wasn't popular here in the us but we did and we were condemned by the u.s., by the state department that we were condemned by the u.n., but years later people appreciated that the great decision that prime minister menachem begin took in 1981 was for the benefit of the american peoples. because when you, the american army invade iraq, you are able to go into iraq without the risk of iraqis nuclear. and let's go back to 1973, the yom kippur war. i'm sure some jewish people in the audience, and for us the jewish people yom kippur, holiest day of the year when we go and pray. 1973 during the yom kippur war, that's something they found that even though i thought i know everything before applicable, but doing the research i learned mys
in the last few weeks, they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in his speech at the u.n. he said six times, he talked about the youtube video. look, if we're hit by terrorists, we're going to call it for what it is, a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. shouldn't we have a marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi, a place we knew there was an al qaeda cell with arms? this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video. now they're trying to blame the romney-ryan ticket for make -- making this an issue. with respect to iraq, we had the same position before the withdrawal, which was we agreed with the obama administration. let's secure our gains. the vice president was put in charge of the negotiations by president obama and they failed to get the agreement. we don't have a status of forces agreement because they failed to get one. that's wh
testimony of state department officials. he is doubling down on denial. >> greta: the former u.n. bamboss dor, john bolton is here. >> incompetence, ideology or coverup. but this is looking like the comedy routine of "who's on first"? >> i think vice-president biden really crossed an important line, reinforced today. they have dug a mote around the white house on the one hand and the state department and the intelligence community on the other. basically saying that the buck stopsa the state department, as ed henry asked the spokesman earlier today. if that's the case, one has to ask, what is the national security council staff for, if not to monitor what is going on at the state department to know where the security problems exist? don't forget, ambassadors are the president's personal representatives, obviously, they work for the state department. but the ambassador covers all of our agencies overseas and all presidential appointees. so to say, we didn't know about it is an admission of real failure on the part of the top management of the white house. >> greta: what secretary of state
. and the house is going to be looking-- >>> the president goes to the u.n. and on multiple occasions apologizing apologizing and pandering to radical islamists. >> we paid $seivet,000 to run ads in arab television, apologizing for this and went to the united nations, embarrassed by the first amendment. >> sean: now we are getting lectured, trip transpire, that we need blasphemy laws in merge, part of them come from this president of egypt, whom we are giving how many millions of dollars -- billions, excuse me? >> sean, look. it's clear that there wasn't enough protection of the ambassador. there were four people died because there wasn't enough security. -- >>> wait a minute. but the president keeps saying, this was spontaneous -- >> it doesn't matter-- >>> why are they lying? >> you guy it's [overlapping dialogue] >> it doesn't matter if it was spontaneous or if it was-- >>> it does if the president tells us something that is factually inaccurate! >> it doesn't, sean. the fact is, security wasn't there. there wasn't enough security. why wasn't it there? that's what-- >>> it is okay that the pre
and arm syrian opposition groups so they can defend themselves. while a u.n. investigation found regime forces most likely responsible for the killings and said that rebel forces were also guilty of murder and torture and several radical islamic groups emerged in syria. president obama recently promised to send the syrian rebels another $45 million. the u.s. already shipped food, medicine and communications gear but no lethal weapons. some former military officials say it is time to do more. >> that does not mean the u.s. should put boots on the ground. but our leadership should be felt, it should be visible. >> reporter: now, by most estimates, the syrian regime has thousands of battle tanks and a regular supply of ammunition of iran to fight that kind of armament you're talking about giving the rebels things like shoulder-fired rockets and there is a concern that sending those types of weapons in could fall in to the hands of terrorists. that's the big difference with president obama's regime or his administration i should say. he's been advocating trying to keep it a low intensity co
. again, this contradicts directly what was said by the u.n. ambassador, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice. and it contradicts essentially what the administration had been saying for five days after we reported that intelligence officials had within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack. this comes ahead of committee hearing tomorrow on capitol hill where a house oversight committee will start calling witnesses. they have uncovered a full list of some 230 security incidents that happened in the year before. on the consulate. and the area around the consulate. in libya. and one of the congressman who just got back from libya talked about that today. and state department response. >> twice in the lead up to this attack on 9/11 compound in benghazi was bombed. twice the british ambassador had an assassination attempt. we were moving in 9/11 and now the white house wants to say we had no direct information. no actionable intelligence. are you kidding me? where else in the world was the consulate bombed twice? >> i'm not going in timeline details what we had when and whe
failed and what should be a negotiation process has devolved into a series of heated disputes at the u.n. in this old conflict, as in every challenge we face in the middle east, only a new president will bring the chance to begin anew. >> well, here he was in may at that fund-raiser in boca rat ton with a lot of wealthy people arguing the best thing to do was accept that it remained an unresolved problem. let's watch his very different approach to people he viewed, i think, as more hawkish even than him. here is mitt romney behind closed doors. >> i don't think the palestinians want to see peace anyway for political purposes, committed to the destruction of israel and these thorny issues and i say there's just no way. what you do is you move things along the best way you can and hope for some degree of stability but realize it's going to remain unsolved. >> that's the policy over there. we're going to wait things out. >> you know, i was the first person to see that tape, and it was one of the few moments other than the 47% moment that kind of stung me. because i knew that he had supporte
. under secretary of state pat rib kennedy said u.n. ambassador susan rice going with the best information available. "special report" from kentucky starts at 6:00 eastern. big night. now back to new york and my colleagues with "the five." ♪ ♪ >> bob: i'm supposed to talk to libbials in this block. since there aren't in, i'm not worried one bit about that or what president obama will do about winning november, because he is. even though the president acknowledged a bad night in the first debate, he's confident, too. >> that debate, what happened? >> well, governor romney had a good night. it had a bad night. >> how bad? >> well, it's not the first time i've had a bad night. i think what is important is the fundamentals of what this race is about haven't changed. >> bob: that is exactly right. here are some interesting facts if you put the polls in together now. romney got somewhat of a bump from the first debate but the problem was in ohio, virginia, and florida, 92% of the people already made up their minds. after the debate, none changed. undecided in the states, romney did win the u
at the u.n.? >> when mitt romney left the campaign for exhaustion, barack obama was putting in 19 hour days. jenna: hold on a second. brad and sean, i think, i think we've -- >> that is ridiculous, sean. that is insulting. jenna: if you're a presidential fund raise and you also can't be tired? is that what you're saying. >> that is what sean is suggesting. >> i think there is a difference --. jenna: if you will, brad, talk about these priorities. one of the messages that seems to becoming out of all this talk about the debate is that the president did not prioritize the practice and preparedness you need to enter into the debate. that is why he didn't look as good as some might expect. how do you answer the criticism the president did not look prepared? >> i think if you go back and look at his answers i think he certainly looked he certainly looked prepared. mitt romney had sharper and more energetic performance. it was, as robert gibbs said a performance. it is easy to do well in a debate when you're not willing to confront your own policies honestly. he lied about his tax plan. he lied a
. >> they suspect the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in a speech he said six times, he talked about the youtube video. now they're trying to blame the ryan-romney ticket for making this an issue. >> steve: of course, that's what they were talk being yesterday. so who won? cnn and cnbc did polls and mr. ryan was on top. cbs had one with some focus group. they felt that the vice president won. peggy nuland writes fort second time in two weeks, the democrat came out and defeated himself. in both cases, the republican was strong and the democrat somewhat disturbing. another way to say it is the old man tried it patronize the kid and the kid stood his ground. the old man pushed and the kid pushed back. >> brian: she did not mean that complimentary. >> gretchen: i actually think had is a debate that's going to percolate over a couple of days. when people go back and read and maybe see video and see this reaction, i think it may percolate over time
to the u.n., they can't get a coherent story about what happened now more than a month ago. >> and all the vice president said was we're going to get to the bottom of it. i love what peggy noonan said, "oh, good." >> let me show the clip and then i have a question for you because the night began, right out of the box, martha raddatz went right to libya and the deadly assault that killed four americans. >> it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. look, if we are hit by terrorists, we're going to call it for what it is, a terrorist attack. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem, and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarky. this lecture on embassy security, the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. and by the way, at the time we
speech or religion? >> and question about the possibility of the norm established at the u.n. it gives to the point of this is a deeply seated issue. >> thank you for your presentation. my question goes to you. in a recent panel that happened over here, i think he said the muslim brotherhood is pro- business in fiscal conservative. how does that play as to how they actually perceive the muslim brotherhood or morsi's party as being part of a unique element? there is politics. >> the kenyan the microphone right there. thank you. >> i am wondering how much being informed effects responses. have you been able to look at the difference between sophisticates and analysis? when you provide more information, a question like that if you had said egypt allowing u.s. warships to go through the suez canal, when you ask a question that way does it end up affecting responses? >> we have four fascinating questions. >> let me just respond to a couple of them. i confess when the young man asked his question i had a response very much like tammy's. do we have a party like that in the united states tax a
some international stories at this hour. the joint u.n. arab league envoy is meeting turkey's foreign minister today. they're discussing how to deal with the rising tensions between syria and turkey. they're now diverting their civilian planes around syrian air space. >>> an audio message believed to be from al qaeda's top leader praises the deadly attacks in libya. the message is posted on several islamist websites but cnn cannot confirm the authenticity of the audio. and at least two refugees from cuba drowned after their raft capsized near cancun, mexico. 11 others are missing. nine men and one woman survived and are now in custody. officials say the yucatan peninsula has become popular for human smugglers because it's not heavily patrolled. >>> on to pakistan now, authorities are doing everything to find those involved in the shooting of a teen activist. a young girl is now fighting for her life in a hospital. shot by the taliban for wanting to go to school. we have the latest on the investigation. >> pakistani authorities say they have made another set of arrests in connection wi
